We know the feeling. It starts somewhere in the gut. It usually blossoms from there when there is a decision to make. It could be a confrontation between a Chamomile tea or a Baileys to relax you in the evening or something bigger like what job offer to take. Often you might feel like you should fight it, battling it back down to the root. We've listened and are reminded by our own mother's and grandmother's mantra: follow your intuition. There are signals to connect with your intuition and reason to trust that gut feeling.
We know when a question is asked in class, and we know the answer but we can doubt ourselves and don't raise our hand? Then, as it turns out, we were right? Our intuition is mostly likely always on point. It's just a matter of learning to trust it.
The one thing we should never doubt is the gut feeling that "I'm not, or my family isn't safe". Simply put, if we feel uncomfortable or unsafe, we trust our gut and take action to ensure our personal safety and the safety of our family. Sometimes we see dangers that others cannot and we hold a respponsibility to act.
And I'm not talking about our childrens dirty washing here (LOL) .....
You know the saying: it's like riding a bike. You just know how to do something. As reported in a study by the University of Chicago "while novice golfers did better when they thought carefully about their putts, the performance of more experienced golfers got much worse when they reflected on what they were doing." Fundamentally, if you're an expert at something, you've developed instinct and muscle memory. Don't overthink it. Just trust your gut....
We might be hanging out with new friends who seem charming, larger than life and over the top but our intuition is totally on point if you can see through the smiles and wit and see integrity. Our intuition is strong when we experience a negative or positive emotion, in the presence of someone or something that may not be healthy for us or may be exactly who and what we need at this time. It’s a sense. A feeling. A trusting.
